Have you ever seen a beautiful photo on the web and thought: “Oh, this is cool, I’m gonna repost it” ?
You didn’t tag the photographer in your reposted photo and think that it’s no big deal, it’s just a photo. You’re right, it is just a photo to YOU.
But for a working professional, someone who makes their living and pays their bills by freelancing, it’s not JUST a photo. It’s hours of hard physical and intellectual work and it’s their personal ad.

What’s supposed to happen
What’s happening when you don’t credit
What you’re making them do
Every artist grow by displaying their work and getting critique. But when their work is spread around without any credit to the artist, AND EVEN MAKES THE OWN ARTIST DELETE IT FROM HIS/HER SITE it lost the purpose and meaning.
